1 mom liked this

My Father did it when his 19 year old dog was very old and infirm. No vets available, and no money to pay for it.

Doggie was very excited at the thought she was maybe going to go hunting....never heard or felt it coming. Died happy.

where i live, it's common to put down your own animals.  I don't think i could do it though

I don't think you're wrong, I'm just wondering. Why, if you don't mind my asking?

Quoting drowningmama:

We do it for our cows on the dairy but not housepets -- no, could never do a housepet.

I couldn't do it. With our dog, we were at the vet anyway. I can understand doing it at home where they are surrounded by their family. I just couldn't do it.

I would rather take them in and let a professional handle it. I had to euthanize a baby raccoon once that we found in the driveway. Worms were already eating it alive and one of its eyes was hanging out and it was screaming. It was the worst thing I've ever had to do.

I done it, but it's easier to take them to the vet sometimes. Plus the vet will cremate larger animals.

Never had to. Mil had a vet come to her home for both her dogs within a month of each other. One had a seizure disorder so she codnt leave the house and the vet just came out for the other one. I couldnt do it myself and i dont know if dh could or would do it.
